  1. Hey posted the prints yesterday. I sent all three versions. Yours to do whatever with! Hope that the project is a success and count me in if you have others that I can contribute to in a positive way.

    • Thanks Lawrence, I look forward to them flying in! I will let you know when they arrive. Bimblebox 153 Birds is gradually coming together and it is exciting to see the incredible diversity of creative responses describing the unique grouping of birds found on Bimblebox.
